Judge Approves Final $626 Million Flint Water Settlement | The Michigan Chronicle

“The court is persuaded that the over $600 million settlement is a fair and sensible resolution of the claims against the settling defendants,” Levy wrote in a 178-page opinion. “The complexity and volume of this litigation present significant risks and potentially great expense to all parties if the cases were to be tried.”

“It’s unacceptable that so many North End residents are missing out on critical lifelines because they don’t have access to high-speed internet,” said Nate Wallace, Knight’s Detroit program director. “This disparity was exacerbated during the pandemic lockdown when high-speed internet became even more critical to daily life.”

PRESS RELEASE November 18, 2021 For information, call Carlota Almanza-Lumpkin at 313 820-3722 Tuskegee Airmen continue 100th Birthday Celebration for Decorated WWII Hero Lt. Col. ALEXANDER JEFFERSON with a Public PARADE OF HONOR at Detroit City Airport On tomorrow, Saturday (Nov. 20th) the Detroit Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen will continue to celebrate the 100th birthday of Lt. Col. Alexander Jefferson, a decorated war pilot and member of the famed 332th Red Tails unit. The public is invited to participate in a Parade of Honor at NOON Saturday, November 20th, at the Coleman A. Young International Airport, 11499 Conner St, Detroit. Hundreds of fans, veterans and service group members are expected to drive through the front circle of the airport and drop off birthday cards for Jefferson, who will be in a heated tent next to the famed monument of Tuskegee Airmen at the front entrance. The lieutenant colonel, one of the finest men Detroit has produced, wasn’t sure people would turn out for such an event. Let’s show him! > Drivers must enter the procession north of the airport on Conner near Six Mile Road. > You will not be able to enter the line from Conner. > Traffic north on Conner will be in both lanes as usual. Traffic south on Conner will be one lane. The event will begin with a Press Conference at Noon with the Rev. Wendell Anthony delivering the invocation and a Delta Airlines Captain making a special presentation to the war hero. The Press Conference will end with a Fly-Over of planes above the airport sponsored by the Tuskegee Airmen National Museum. The City’s Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship, General Services Department, Department of Public Works, Department of Neighborhoods, Detroit Police Department and Detroit Fire Department will be providing support for the event. The press conference will be live streamed to the City of Detroit’s page at: https://www.facebook.com/CityofDetroit Lt. Col. Alexander Jefferson was a member of the storied, groundbreaking 332th and was among the first African American combat pilots in the United States Army Air Corps, that fought in World War II. called Red Tails for the colors on their plane tails, es**rted bombers into action in Europe – and lost so few planes that bombers requested them for flying runs. Jefferson and the Tuskegee Airman overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. They set the stage for civil rights advocates to continue the struggle to end racial discrimination during the Civil Rights Movement. Jefferson was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 15, 1921. He graduated from Chadsey High School Detroit, earned degrees from Wayne State and Howard universities. In January 1944, he graduated from pilot training course at Tuskegee Army Airfield followed by three months of Combat Training at Selfridge Field, Michigan. He served as a P- 51 fighter pilot with the Red Tail, 332nd Fighter Group, 301st Fighter Squadron in Ramitelli, Italy. He flew 18 long range es**rt missions protecting bombers. On August 12, 1944, three days before the invasion of southern France, he was shot down by ground fire, captured by German troops and interned for nine months as a prisoner of war. On January 29, 1945, when the Russians started their offensive, the prisoners, American, British and French, were transferred to Stalag VIIA, Moosburg, about 20 miles north of Dachau. The soldiers were liberated by American forces on the 29th of April 1945, but before he left, he visited to witness the results of the atrocities committed by the N***s. He was discharged from active duty in 1947 and retired from the reserves in 1969 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Following the war, he became an elementary science teacher in the Detroit Public Schools. He retired as an assistant principal in 1979. He is an active member of various church, educational and alumni organizations. He is one of the founders of the Detroit Chapter of the Tuskegee Airman (which is the original chapter). Jefferson was inducted into the Michigan Aviation Hall of Fame. Earlier this week, the City rededicated the airfield in Rouge Park that bears his name. Deputy Mayor Conrad Mallett gave him the key to the city on behalf of Mayor Mike Duggan. Add to your post
